 Additional Information

totally depends on the wind. best if none. as the swell builds on the reef, it will break further out in front of a rock formation (hence rocky point). easy takeoffs, but watch the inside bowl as it sucks up off a shallow area of the reef. when larger, itºs easier to speed past this section.

How do I - Hi heading to Porto for a couple of days, would like to get a shot of this reef, if anyone can give me the name of the beach / village that I should drive to to find it. Cheers C

rocky point, porto. portugal - watch the tides. severe inside suckup and rip. that picture is probably at that suckup spot, but at a higher tide.
